saw this when I hovered over the read in GD and I thought "This guy has to be a FIB."




That was very nice of him to do that for her. Don't seem to hear stories like this on the news though.

60 Minutes just did a piece on Aaron Rodgers. Don't know how many of you saw it, but it turns out he's actually a very shy, somewhat socially awkward guy. So for him to put himself out like that is pretty damn classy in my book.

I'm not above recognizing a thoroughly decent human being just because he plays for a sports team I root against. Consider me now an Aaron Rodgers fan.

You can love a team, or hate a team, but there are some players that are just class acts, and Rodgers is one of them.

Thanks for the link, good man. Spend time with your kids, folks.

Pretty cool. Thanks for the link.

Link Posted: 11/20/2012 6:00:41 PM EST
That was worth watching.

I hope someday that I can bring that much joy to a child just by showing up. Until then I'll live vicariously.


And I'm a Bengal's fan.

I was at a game at Lambeau a couple weeks back, had great 3rd row end-zone seats by the tunnel to the Packers locker room. Halftime I was watching the Packers exit the field to the locker room and naturally everyone's in a rush. Mind you it was the last homegame of October with the whole brest Cancer Awarness thing going on with the pink Jerseys everywhere. Rogers pauses on his way off the field and took maybe 10s to give a young girl in pink (the daughter of a cancer survivor there with her mom I think) the high five, a word, and a smile.

That may have been the most awsome 10s of that girls life.

I know it went unnoticed by 99% the other 58,000 people there. I happened to catch it. The guy is a class act.

I would never want to be famous, but if there were one good reason for being so, being able to do things like that would be it. I can do a lot as just me, but there is something special about a kid getting to meet a hero, and that hero being as nice as they could be.

This man speaks the truth. My wife and I are in a childrens hospital with our 3 year old son right now. He is miserable, he has a bone infection that he is being treated for.

You never know when something bad will happen.

I am very, very sorry for your son. I will keep him in my prayers.

Lots of pro players, NFL, MLB, NBA do things like that.

Unfortunately you can sometimes see that they're only doing it for pub or because they're obligated.

Very nice to see a genuine interaction between a great QB and a littlest fan.

I don't have any links or anything but DeMarcus Ware is another who truly takes the time to visit with the little ones who appreciate it the most.

my nephew was diagnosed with Adrenoleukodystrophy (highlighted by the movie "Lorenzo's Oil") back in the early 90's.

a pretty rare disease which the long chain fatty acids attack the covering of the central nervous system.

back then, prognosis was death.....

a lot of trips to the Mayo Clinic / John Hopkins Clinics in both Minneapolis and Baltimore were routine on a shoestring budget.

the devotions of my sister and bil was highlighted in the Milwaukee Journal and the GB Packers picked up on it.

the GB Packers sent to the house a fully autopgraphed football (Farve, White, Driver, etc..) and jersys which now resides in the family heirloom case along with pictures of Joey who passed shortly thereafter.

the Packers, along with many other sport's teams, show true class in times like this.

Go Pack Go!

He (Rodgers) is one stand up guy, helps a lot in donating to our charity. We were filming a TV spot with him once, and the crowd included 3 PeeWee football teams. When the show was over, instead of leaving, he sat back and signed something for every kid there. Most players bail after signing a few items.

There are several Texans players of each race that are involved with different charities. But keep painting with a broad brush.

Very cool. Problem is you don't usually hear abut the good things any of them do, but the bad shit hits the media immediately.

god bless that beautiful little Angel and all the poor little kids that have to deal with that monster, they're all in my prayers.

As far as Rodgers goes, anyone in the "spotlight" who takes time to bring attention to this type of thing are good to go in my book, thank god for folks like him that help ease the pain a little, and bring the attention to issues such as cancer.

One day, this evil thing will be defeated.

Thanks for donating your time Mr Rodgers.

Well done sir.

Racist©

Charles Woodson has done some great work too as a Packer. Just recently he donated $100,000 to help Sandy victims. A few years ago he donated 2 million dollars to the University of Michigan Children's Hospital. He happens to be black.

Good people are good people....douchebag criminals are douchebag criminals, regardless of race.

Ndamukong Suh is kinda a fucker on the field , but is pretty widely known for visiting childrens hospitals and such with little to no PR
and being very charitable to the tune of millions a year

Plus all his NFL fine money goes to charity as well
